"You can't ride two bicycles home."

Not entirely true, I've ever done just that bring home bikes saved from trash pick-up.

Seems I only find them when I'm out riding one of my own bikes... never when I have the van.

You should have seen the looks I got dragging home two bikes, each one's front wheel bungeed to either side of my rear rack and their handlebars tied together.

Ah but you're only riding ONE bike, the others are on tow.
Have you ever done that thing where you pedal one bike with one hand on the handlebar, holding the end of the other bike's handlebar with your free hand?
I was fine until it came to turning a corner, then it suddenly became very painful ::)

That's what I usually do when it's only one bike I'm bringing home.

Of course, it's even easier when I have my trailer with me.

I think it was Garfield that came up with the Lazy motto: "There must be an easier way."

"What's so great about being lazy, you may ask.

You can bet it wasn't an exercise freak that came up with power steering".

Actually some Vintage Mustang owners remove the power steering but keep the power steering steering box.  It gives you a tighter turning circle.

I have a program called Fortune on my computer, every time it boots up, it displays a randomly chosen quote from a database of massive proportions, whenever I see one that resonates, I copy it down, this was one of them.

Great minds think alike, but fools seldom differ and great minds may think alike, but the best think for themselves.

Late to bed, Get up late, Makes a man healthy, wealthy and great!

I didn't do it, nobody saw me do it, you can't prove anything.

If life gives you lemons put them down your top to make your boobs look bigger.

Like the cricket, who chirps the whole night, but seldom says anything meaningful, so too are my opinions, and should be regarded as such.
I want to tell you a terrific story about oral contraception.
I asked this girl to sleep with me and she said "no." -Woody Allen

Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome.-Asimov

Never answer an anonymous letter.-Lawrence Peter (Yogi) Berra

Never express yourself more clearly than you are able to think.-Niels Bohr

If animals weren't meant to be eaten, then why are they made out of meat?

A hen is only an egg's way of making another egg.

I am ready to meet my Maker. Whether my Maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter.-Winston Churchill

Don't try to solve serious matters in the middle of the night.-Philip K. Dick

Never eat fruits and nuts. You arre what you eat.

I am free of all prejudices. I hate everyone equally.-W.C.Fields

The reason there is so little crime in Germany is that it's against the law.

I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book-Groucho Marx

An optimist will tell you the glass is half-full; the pessimist, half-empty; and the engineer will tell you the glass is twice the size it needs to be.

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark, and professionals built the Titanic.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes

A censor is someone who views pornography all day, but does not get corrupted even though he is certain you would be.

Life is a sexually transmitted disease

A herd of buffalo can move only as fast as the slowest buffalo, and when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular culling of the weakest members.
In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells making the brain a faster and more efficient machine.
So that's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

Politicians & nappies both need to be changed, and for the same reason

Eat right.
Stay fit.
Die anyway.

If you believe everything you read, better not read.

In the begining there was nothing and God said 'Let there be light', and there was still nothing but everybody could see it.

The surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that it has never tried to contact us.

And I shall stop there...
